Condensation in Lens
Er, ok, what's the best way to avoid condensation in lens? I experienced the problem on the latest trip, where my cabin (on a cruise ship) was like relatively cold, but not that bad, and then when I go on the deck my lens just fogs up and I can't do anything for quite a bit.
And the best part is, I had been on the deck for half an hour already, before taking out the camera.
Will anything bad happen to the lens? Condensation was inside, I think, but went away after a while, got fed up and opened it on deck to expose it to the surrounding air for a while.
Thanks for your replies in advance, will file it away from future reference.

Re: Condensation in Lens
wrap your camera and lens in a plastic bag. Heat the bag up with ur body heat before bringing out to the warm area. That should help prevent the condensation.
